I don't want to spend anymore than 60-70 dollars on a power supply considering I'm on somewhat of a budget. I found this psu and instantly felt myself drawn to it. It looks pretty sick and would fit a black-red themed build that would go with my room. However, it is not bronze certified. I'm honestly not entirely sure what that means, but I do know that many people consider that a necessity when buying a psu...So is this one good for the money? It seems like a pretty nice deal with that rebate knocking it down to 40 bucks....But I don't want something tha's gonna die on me in a year or two.
Yes it is a solid power supply. But I wouldnt recommend OCZ that much nowadays. anything that has 80 PLUS would be fine. If you are really "budget" you would get a non-modular one. But yea this is fine and good.
